Did anyone ever find a source for custom side panels?

I bought from them years ago and it took months to fill the order.

Such simple panels. Surely you can commission some local woodcrafter to make you a pair? I'd almost bet that someone could make themselves a pair for next to nothing, just have to have a couple VERY minor wood working tools. Trees are everywhere. If i were so inclined, I'd just go buy a board of the right thickness, use a table or jig saw, some sandpaper and a drill... done and done. Not sure youd even need a router, as you would with the foogers. Tempest sides dont have an inset. Matching sides anyhow, just stack them to compare and sand. Factory panels look great to me, so I havent bothered.

Usa sourced walnut, 100% tung oil finish. Hand cut, hand sanded, and made in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina. Same thickness as stock panels in pictures. The smallest bit larger, so its easy to mindlessly rub the edges and sides. Walnut darkens and looks good with age imho. I use lemon oil on my older pieces, long after the tung oil has set into the wood and cured. These things are SLICK! Im biased as I made them and sanded the crud out of them, but tis no lie... Feels so much better and looks great in compare to the stockers. I can make more of them, if anyone is interested..
